Frugal Friday

A great way to save on seasonings is to grow your own.
We have started a small indoor herb garden, with our most used and favorite herbs.
It is so easy! If you have some pots laying around like we did, gather them up and fill them with some soil and compost. Herbs aren't that picky about what kind of soil they have and most will grow in any kind of soil.

We started with just our favorite 3 :
Chives (I add this to everything!)

Fresh herbs are much more tastier than dried ones, but remember if you are using fresh herbs you must use more to get the same flavor.

Simply find some pots laying around, or make your own out of gallon milk jugs (cut in half and use the bottom portion, but add holes for drainage). Fill with some soil (from outside). And add your seeds. Seeds can be ordered online, or bought at almost any local store, especially this time of year. Make sure you follow the guidelines on your seed packet when planting.

I've been wanting to do this for a while now... you've inspired me! By the way, I love the title and verse for your blog! It's so neat to see other women who look to scripture to find our "calling".
